Tandberg built some of the finest products in the 1970's and beyond. Made in Norway. They have a truly warm but clean sound.

This Tandberg TR-2055 was built from 1976-77 and retailed for $1099.00. The Tandberg's unique styling with the large square push buttons and dark blue meter and dial lights make it easily identifiable. They are very well built receivers and have great FM tuning sections.

In the past it has been a normal rule for top quality FM tuner / stereo amplifier equipment to consist of separate units for the tuner, preamplifier, and power amplifier. And the rule has been justified, (up to the 70's) because no manufacturer has managed to construct these units on the same chassis and retain the same performance as comparable separate units. The challenge for Tandberg was to break this rule. The result was the new TR 2000 series. The first product in the series was the TR 2075 which even today is rated amongst the best receivers in the world by American and European Hi-Fi journals. The tests carried out by these journals prove that the performance of the TR 2075 is equal to or better than comparable separate units!

The TR 2055 has the same FM tuner as the TR 2075 and is equipped with an amplifier that delivers more than 2 x 55 watts into 8 ohms over the whole frequency range from 20 Hz to 20 000 Hz with less than 0.15% total distortion.
